Welcome to the newest weekly feature here at Bookshelf Fantasies… Shelf Control!
Shelf Control is all about the books we want to read — and already own! Consider this a variation of a Wishing & Waiting post… but looking at books already available, and in most cases, sitting right there on our shelves and e-readers.
Want to join in? See the guidelines and linky at the bottom of the post, and jump on board! Let’s take control of our shelves!
My Shelf Control pick this week is:
What it’s about (synopsis via Goodreads):
Jess Moulson is convicted of murder. But it’s a murder she can’t remember committing.
Nothing is quite clear from the drug-fuelled night when a blaze set in her apartment killed the little boy upstairs. But when the media brands Jess a child killer, she starts to believe it herself.
Now she’s on her way to Fellside, the biggest, most formidable women’s prison in Europe, standing in the bleak Yorkshire moors.
But Jess won’t be alone in her prison cell. Lurking in the shadows is an unexpected visitor… the ghost of the ten-year-old boy she killed. He says he needs her help – and he won’t take no for an answer.
How I got it:
I bought it.
When I got it:
Pretty much the second it was released, this past May.
Why I want to read it:
I just loved The Girl With All the Gifts (review), and so I preordered the author’s newest book as soon as I could, and had it in my hands as of release day. And still haven’t gotten around to reading it. The only excuse I have is that it’s a big fat hardcover and I’ve been gravitating lately toward more… um… portable books. But I will read it — fingers crossed, by the end of this year.
